Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped by Sunday Morning Futures to discuss, amongst other things, the partisan January 6 committee.
“They are running over peoples’ civil liberties,” says Gingrich. “You have both with Attorney General Garland and with this Select Committee of January 6th, people who have run amok. They are breaking the rules. They are going after people in a way which is reminiscent of the British monarchy using closed-door systems that we outlawed deliberately because we had seen it.”
The former speaker says the panel is “literally just running over the law” and “pursuing innocent people,” insisting they are “basically a lynch mob” and that Garland is “misusing the FBI.”
“What they need to understand is on January 4 next year, you’re going to have a Republican majority in the House, and a Republican majority in the Senate, and all these people who have been so tough and so mean and so nasty are gonna be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email.”
“I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down, and the wolves are going to find out that they’re now sheep. And they’re the ones who are, in fact, going to, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kind of laws they’re breaking.”
